finally something worth watching in Arabic movies
2 April 2015 | by RaySee all my reviews

This is a must watch movie for the talented director Amin Matalqa . Im impressed by all the actors, the script and the scenes selections.

Thanks for Dubai1 TV station, i managed to see this movie today when it was aired, Im not sure why not many (including me) haven't heard of it, so I think it needs more publicity.

I think the theme of the script is close to the hearts of many of us, and hope one day such thing can be seen out there and not just in movies. The first movie I have seen to Amin was some short clips (like 9 or 10 years ago) glad to see him going into the main stream. I will sure try to look up Captain Abu Raed, which i haven't seen yet and directed by the same director.
